New Video Game Releases: Week of March 13, 2012
There are ten new game releases to check out this week on console and handheld systems.
The week kicks off with Mario Party 9 from Nintendo, featuring an explosion of new mini games.
Sega hops on to Walking Dead fever with Yakuza: Dead Souls, taking its PS3 exclusive franchise into the world of the undead.
EA Sports pushes its Fifa franchise into the NBA Jam and NFL Blitz domain with Fifa Street, an edgier soccer game.
Nacmo brings Tales of Graces State side in Tales of Graces f, which should delight RPG gamers who’ve wrapped up Final Fantasy XIII-2 or who are looking for a change of pace from Skyrim. Also from Namco is Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations. If you’re a Naruto fan, you’ll definitely want to check this one out.
Silent Hill: Downpour from Konami brings the game back to its slow-paced roots.
The 3DS gets a new title with Planet Crashers 3D, a cartoony RPG combat game from UTV (note: this title was delayed).
Finally, we have three new titles available for download on XBLA and PSN on console: Defenders of Ardania, Shoot Many Robots and Journey. We’ll be knee deep in Shoot Many Robots tonight, where we’ll be doing just that.
